Movie Review: (2008) What Happens In Vegas

What Happens In VegasI went into this movie not expecting much and in turn did not receive much. This is basically a prototypical Romantic Comedy, sans romance. The chemistry between Cameron Diaz and Ashton Kutcher is pretty well non-existent. The whole story seems outlandish and highly unlikely. A couple of people get married in Las Vegas after an all night bender, the next day they decide to get an annulment. One of them wins 3 million dollar and the usual trail of carnage follows as they fight over who the money belongs to. This movie is really neither romantic nor comedic. The supporting cast far outshines the leads. Lake Bell playing Joy’s (Diaz) best friend is witty in her fleeting scenes. Zack Galifianakis is humorous, as is usual for him. And Rob Corddry is sufficient as Jack’s (Kutcher) buddy and lawyer Hater. All in all this movie is not very satisfying and I wouldn’t really recommend it to anyone who can’t take their brain out of their skull in order to watch it.

I give What Happens In Vegas a D.
